and i think that john mccain came out just today and said he was opposed to her nomination. i don't think that's a fair statement because susan rice was simply following the advice from general petraeus who john mccain says was a hero so there's a great deal of inconsistency in the republican messaging that needs to be answered. >> mccain's biggest obstacle is the fact she went on the sunday talkers and talked about the video that -- >> and she was following the talking points given to her by general petraeus of cia. how can you say that petraeus is a hero on the one hand but susan rice who is following general petraeus' talking points is not. >> the president has his first press conference coming up in just a couple of hours and as we have been highly aware, the fiscal cliff is certainly going to be a big conversation but can the president get the focus where it needs to be when it comes to the fiscal cliff especially when we have people like paul ryan giving interviews saying he's showing back up in washington, d.c. pretty much the same way he left? >> well, there is clearly a h
details about the woman at the center of the investigation. >> we'll ask senator john mccain about the pentagon scandal and why he wants to stop president obama's choice for secretary of state. >>> and target employees are fighting back after being told they will have to open stores on thanksgiving night. >> but we begin this morning with today's "eye opener," your world in 90 seconds. >>> no one should leap to any conclusions until we determine what the facts are and we will. >> the pentagon responds to a growing scandal surrounding general allen and former cia director petraeus. >> sources tell cbs news that paula broadwell the alleged mistress of david petraeus warned general john allen that jill kelly was a seductress. >> allen denies any wrongdoing as investigators look through 20 20,000 to 30,000 pages of documents. >> president obama will hold a news conference today since being re-elected and it's expected he'll talk about the so-called fiscal cliff. >> the american people want action. >> the only thing standing between success and failure is presidential leadership. >> thr
to talk about how they can work together. the republicans say look he did the same thing with john mccain as president elect in 2008. both parties went to their separate corners in the end and didn't get a lot done together. republic strategists are saying if the president is serious about this second term maybe they can get business done. take a listen. >> i was interested in his remarks last night saying the best is yet to come. we would have liked to have seen some of that in the first four years. maybe is he serious this time. >> in an effort to try to show he is following up, we're told by white house aides that late in the evening last night into the early hours of this morning the president started dialing up john boehner, the house speaker on the republic side. harry reid the democrat. leaders in both parties to try to say look, let's get this conversation started, shep. >> shepard: ed, the campaign seemed very confident in this outcome is it saying anything about what might have surprised the campaign. >> what they are saying is they couldn't believe the margin of victory in colo
as the replacement for secretary hillary clinton. but republican senators john mccain and lindsey graham said they questioned statements that rice made after four americans were killed in that september attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi, libya. it is within the power of a single senator to stop a nomination, which is why the president got his back up today. >> if senator mccain and senator graham and others want to go after somebody, they should go after me. and i'm happy to have that discussion with them. but for them to go after the u.n. ambassador who had nothing to do with benghazi and was simply making a presentation based on intelligence that she had received and to besmirch her reputation, is outrageous. when they go after the u.n. ambassador apparently because they think she's an easy target, then they've got a problem with me. and should i choose, if i think that she would be the best person to serve america in the capacity of the state department, then i will nominate her. that's not a determination i've made yet. >> pelley: this will be a donnybrook. so we asked wyatt andrew
and republican senators john mccain and lindsay graham. it began to escalate earlier this morning when the senators vowed to stand in the way of the president if -- if he goes ahead and nominates the united nations ambassador susan rice to replace hillary clinton secretary of state. mccain and graham are scathing of rice's early remarks about the deadly attack on the u.s. diplomats in benghazi, libya. >> this is about the role she played around four dead americans when it seems to be that the story coming out of the administration. and she's the point person, is so disconnected to reality. i don't trust her. and the reason i don't trust her is because i think she knew better. and if she didn't know better, she shouldn't be the voice of america. somebody has got to start paying a price around this place. >> let's see what happens here. but we will do whatever's necessary to block the nomination that's within our power as far as susan rice is concerned. >> all right. listen to the president's very, very angry response to senators mccain and graham during that white house news conference.
hearing this week on a separate problem. intelligence nurse flurs surrounding benghazi. >> john mccain is calling for a broader watergate style panel to investigate. >> for the sake of the families of those four brave americans who sacrificed their lives, they and the american people deserve answers. >> and overnight in australia, secretary panetta and clinton urging the public not to rush to judgment on general allen, who has been nominated to be the supreme allied commander at nato. >> no one should leap to conclusions here. general allen is doing an excellent job. at isaf. he has my continued confidence to lead our forces and to continue the fight. >> general allen is a distinguished commander who's been an important part of the nato isaf mission in afghanistan. >>> and more on jill kelley, friendly with both generals. she and her twin sister did have a brief stint on reality tv appearing on the food network nearly a decade ago. >> it's nice to exploit their weakness which is their ego. >> plus, nancy pelosi deciding to go for another term as democratic leader. her big announcement
was drawn and the president was angry about what john mccain and lindsey graham said. what is the predicate for that? she's not even been nominated. it's not clear the decision has been made to nominate her for secretary of state. >> susan rice is an outstanding person and an effective ambassador to the u.n. i i think it's unfair to hold her accountable when she -- solely accountable when she was articulating views of the entire administration. i know how the process works and you do, too, before someone goes on the sunday morning shows people get together and decide what is our best knowledge of what happened on issue x, y or, z and she was simply articulate what the administration believed to be the truth at that time five days after the attack in benghazi. it's unfair to hold her responsible for that. she's an outstanding public servant and deserves to be treated in a much more -- in a much more honorable way. >> as people are being invited -- using the term loosely -- up to the hill for hearings they feel like star chambers. the house foreign affairs committee said secretary clinton wou
committee to what happened in benz? >> john mccain and myself we will introduce a resolution asking the majority leader, mitch mcconnell to do a select committee. why do you need one? the state department is under the foreign operations committee foreign relations committee oversight. department of defense is under armed service. if you have three different committees interviewing people separately we won't know what one group will significant sailing. so we should form a committee over department of defense, department of the state and the c.i.a. and ask questions and have a professional approach to this. i think congress would be making a huge mistake, let three committees go off by themselves and not coordinate. >> greta: senator harry reid, his view on a select committee is what? >> i don't know. i don't believe you can get to the truth in a professional way. when you talk to the c.i.a., also you want to talk to the defense, why were these people left hanging for eight hours. the c.i.a., why did you not get ready for an attack people were telling you. state department, god knows
hill watching those who have lost a big election come back. you had john mccain four years ago, john kerry eight years ago. so it is different because during the weeks after he was put on the romney ticket, there was a lot offed a you'll lation for paul ryan here. it is different now. and he comes back and we expect he'll get his same position as the head of the house budget committee. that requires a special waiver because he's had that job for the maximum amount of time. he's still well-regarded by his republican colleagues and i think you get a sense that he's been through a challenging election period. we'll have to see how much of a public posture he wants to have going forward, and so ryan is back, but we don't yet have a measure of how influential he will be. >> what sway then, kelly, do you think he has in the fiscal cliff negotiations? >> everything we're getting a sense of is that this will be a negotiation that at least on front stage will be between speaker boehner and president obama. and so boehner is certainly influenced by ryan's knowledge of the budget, but i don't t
what john mccain said right before his meeting today. here it is. >> my focus is on four dead americans, all of them brave, unnecessarily, and what is clearly of all the earmarks of a cover-up. >> was there a cover-up? >> well, erin, there is still an awful lot of questions to be answered. of course, there's an investigation being undertaken now by admiral mullen, former head of our joint chiefs of staff, as well. and when that process plays out, we're going to have a lot more answers to questions about what happened. the key thing right now, though, i think -- and i think senator mccain would agree with this, we need to make sure we do everything possible to bring to justice those who committed these acts that led to the death of four americans. that's the most important thing right now, in addition to making sure that every embassy, every consulate, every -- every installation where we have our diplomats who are very brave americans on the ground doing important work that we do everything we can to secure them. but i think that we're going to have more answers when we go through the p

john mccain taking on the white house over the benghazi attack. a lot of the questions are for general petraeus, at the center of a growing scandal. lieutenant colonel rick francona once served in the cia also. the opinionated penn gillette. god bless you. >> thank you so much. >> let us start, if i may, with the lieutenant colonel. it is bordering on the absurd, this story. at the same time, there are very serious potential ramifications. we've already seen the loss of general petraeus as director of the cia. to many people's minds, one of the great military figures of his generation. he's gone. you have another general supposed to take over the ultimate nato supreme command position who is now embroiled in the same scandal as well and that may or may not end in a certain way. what do you make of it? where do you see this going? >> well, it's surprising that you have two four star generals basically being removed from the scene this close together, and they both came from the same command. you'll remember that general allen was general petraeus' deputy when they were at central comman

yesterday at the same four years ago if we had the electorate of 1988, john mccain would've defeated barack obama. so the facts are there. if people turn out, if minority voters turn out, republicans have a disadvantage to start with. latino vote which is huge. look at florida, colorado, nevada. you could even argue iom. state after state, the latino vote if you take it out, democrats would've lost. even in florida, 61, 39. cuban-americans are no longer the majority in florida among latinos, but also the younger generation of cuban-americans in setting puerto rican or dominican latinas. they're not voting that the anti-castro parents and grandparents. asian-americans is a big issue. 75, 25 for obama. i remember covering the race. bush actually won the asian-american vote before september 11, asian-american vote was the swing vote leading republican. yesterday was three to one democratic. urban rural are mere images and is roughly 6040. demographically which areas, you wouldn't want to bet on rural america, the population center going ahead. young and old. it is again the youngest voters are
him about those e-mails. >> and senator john mccain was at that meeting as well. he's the ranking member of the armed service committee. what did they have to say? >> reporter: very interesting. until last night, the folks up here were thinking they had to focus on one scandal, and now it's of course two, with very big players. and the other has to do with the pentagon. and john mccain is the ranking republican on the armed services committee. i asked about how they're going to go forward with their investigation of general allen's alleged flirtatious e-mails with a woman. watch this. >> and i just was very surprised and the secretary of defense called me up and said that they were going to have a full investigation, that general allen denies any impropriety, so i think it's appropriate to have the investigation go forward and the senate armed forces committee look at it as well. >> are you comfortable with him serving in his current capacity? >> yes. i am -- i am comfortable with that. we need someone in charge. no one has ever argued that his performance of duty is not been exce
petraeus, questions about libya, question about benghazi and his national security team. you heard john mccain and lindsey graham today come out vehemently against the idea of susan rice becoming secretary of state. there's a whole bunch of questions that this white house would prefer not to be dealing with today. they'd prefer to be talking about the fiscal cliff. i have a feeling they'll be disappointed. >> of course, so far, the story that started with david petraeus is so complex we actually chose to diagram it out last night. there are no new components today but washington will be all riled up with investigations and hearings for the foreseeable future. >> that's right. and there is now talk david petraeus will testify in the next couple of days, either tomorrow or friday, that should loosen, let out some steam. >> chuck todd has to sit down. the president is entering the room. >> good afternoon, everybody. please have a seat. i hear you have some questions for me. but let me just make a few remarks at the top and then i'll open it up. first of all i want to reiterate what i said on frid
, you know, where the president was being pressured by john mccain, lindsey graham, greg, kenya people on the hill go faster. and the president spent a little more time to make sure that there was consensus in the region, resolution from the united nations that gave legitimacy, and partners willing to share the burden to get something meaningful done, which was the transition, difficult as it is, that is underway in libya. that's the way the united states prefers to do business. the more we can do it that way, it reinforces our policies. it reinforces our values, and that probably is the most meaningful thing we can do in terms of promoting outcomes that have public diplomacy at their heart. >> i was going to say, if you don't have the benefit of the doubt, just let public -- [inaudible] >> let me conclude by asking you a yes or no question. looking forward for years, over the next four years, is there any realistic chance of significant reform, we organization of public diplomacy, or significant increase for public diplomacy? >> yes, yes, no. >> which one is the no? >> possibly the bb
the edges. and maybe running against john mccain in 2008, barack obama did well among those groups in the other states and extremely well in wisconsin and iowa over performing even by the margin in the change of the electorate that he did in 2012. so, -- >> i'm guessing the delta of between the working class whites and nationally was bigger and 12 than 08. this and i think obama's performance in the west velte is a little bit overstated by the election polls and once you begin to the the that it isn't quite as expected as the pre-election polls might have suggested. i have to drag a little but i was kind of falling asleep on the decision desk in new york and a fierce twitter debate about the nature of the early turnout data in ohio and in a ohio a closer state than the poles were giving him credit for and the model projected the tipping point stayed in this election had a 39 wind 6% chance of being ohio and actually ohio was still more than the national average. the tipping point once again was colorado. one other than come the attacks that you referred to on absolutely true what d
the use of the web, and then john kerry carried it forward on sort of that aspect of it. but, boy, the bush campaign had it going. and then in 2008 where the mccain campaign had its up and then its down and then a little up and down, but the thing about it is whatever the state of the technology, the state of the art on republican presidential campaign organization efforts from '04 was lost in '08. and had to get effectively rebuilt, this time by the romney campaign. but only after they were able to get the republican nomination in april which was so late in part because of super pacs that basically kept the process going much longer than it ever normally goes. i mean, you know, historically as long as stu and i have been watching this and before that, when a candidate started losing primaries, their donors closed their checkbooks. you run out of money, you drop out of the race. and now with super pacs what's happening is, you know, sheldon edelson can keep gingrich going for a month or two more and prolong the process and foster frieze can do the same thing with santorum. so that
